Free or Reduced Meal Application Software

Software to process Free or Reduced School Lunch Applications Quickly.

Free or Reduced Meal Software

F.O.R.M.S. is a customized software package that was developed to help Food Service Directors nationwide who are swamped under the Free or Reduced meal application process. The benefits of this software are twofold, as it also leads to increases in e-Rate funding to schools. Participation in this state/federal entitlement program is crucial to your school’s fair share of funding. F.O.R.M.S. can function as a stand alone package if a POS system is already in place.

F.O.R.M.S. simplifies processing, speeds the process, helps you qualify more students and quantifies the results. The burdensome task of processing free or reduced school lunch applications is simultaneously time consuming, tedious, error prone and frustrating. That being said school districts that fail to perform this USDA program efficiently and thoroughly are losing tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars each school year in federal/state funding. In addition to school lunch reimbursement, programs such as E-rate, Title I and No Child Left Behind use free or reduced numbers to gage poverty.

F.O.R.M.S. will provide you with:

  • Multi-child household application forms.
  • Automatic calculation of family eligibility by income. 
  • Family notification letters for denied or accepted applications.
  • A history of student changes (i.e. transfers, lunch type, etc.).
  • Peer recognition by phone number or address for every member of the household/family.
  • Imports TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) or Food Stamp for direct certification via social security number.
  • Can be used as a stand-alone application. 
  • Imports data from admissions Exports data for No Child Left Behind.
  • Client-server database available anywhere in the school district via WAN/LAN.
  • Discover how school districts earn tens/hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional State/Federal Funding.

A systematic approach to increase the number of free and reduced applications, breakfast & lunch reimbursements, E-rate and Title I funding.

“In the first year our high school Free and Reduced increased by 5% or about 50 kids a day. That’s over $15,000 per year in lunch reimbursement alone.”
